notmovingpictures Episode 059: Live Your Life, R.I.P. Chris Cornell

Once again a great voice has been lost to us. Chris Cornell died the other day and I decided to speak my mind about not waiting around to see or do something because there might not be another day.

Ten For Tuesday Episode 115: Nothing But X!

This special episode is because I finally got to see X in concert earlier this month in Oklahoma City and I didn't want to play just one of their songs. Why choose one when you can play ten right? So enjoy these amazing songs and by all means go out and catch them live if you get the chance, I hope I'll get to again and soon.

Photo Album: Local H @ The Shrine, Tulsa, 9 April, 2017



This was the first time for me seeing Local H and all I can say is I hope there will be many more occurrences. Just two people playing stripped rock and roll yet with a very full sound that does not suffer from having no bass player, no second guitarist, not even a keyboard player. My friend Aaron has sung praises for catching Local H live for many years to me and finally I had the chance and listened to him. Call me converted now. I am a fan and can't wait until they come somewhere close again. I will travel to see them, they are that good.

notmovingpictures Episode 057: Road Trip Talk

Finally Tommy has returned! As promised this episode comes from the recent road trip to Dallas on our way to see Testament, Sepultura and Prong. Be forewarned, this was recorded in Tommy's truck with Chris and Robbie in the back so there is a lot of noise but that cannot be avoided. Luckily it's not too bad. As usual we talk about politics, especially those here in Oklahoma, specifically how the elected officials in this state have decided that they know what's best for the people, so they can ignore what was voted on.

We talk about the bureaucracy that is the U.S. government, what's wrong with the medical insurance here (i.e. we have no real choices) and once again how marijuana should be legalized and what a complete joke Scott Pruitt is. All that and more, plus we also recorded another episode on the way back home the next day which will be coming soon.

Photo Album: Roddy Radiation 5/7/2015 Boulevard Trash Tulsa


Excited wasn't strong enough of a word for how I felt when I found out that guitarist Roddy Radiation (Byers) from the legendary 2Tone ska band The Specials was going to be in Tulsa. This was a must see show as far as I was concerned. I had actually had a picture taken with him on the Warped Tour in 1998 with the version of The Specials that was touring at that time. One of these days I'll get it scanned and show it here. I thought about mentioning it to him because he was very accessible in the small space that was Boulevard Trash but ultimately decided to let him be. It's not as if he would remember the few seconds that he took with me considering all that he was done in his life. Seeing him perform in this setting was more than enough for me.
